Owner of Estate Sale Help Has a Passion for Assisting Trafficking Survivors


When Jennie Krausse learned about our work with survivors of human trafficking she immediately knew she needed to be involved. Jennie runs Estate Sale Help, a business that assists families who are going through the often-difficult process of liquidating the estates of loved ones. She and her crew turn an estate into a living museum and tribute to the person or people who once lived in the home, posting a video and biographical info on their website and sending information to their special emailing list of sale enthusiasts. They run the sale, then they fully clean up the property.

Opening Doors staff approached Jennie requesting donations of furniture or household goods that aren't sold. Jennie shocked us by leaping beyond our expectations. On a Tuesday in late January, Jennie conducted an estate sale in East Sacramento, and donated 100% of her proceeds to Opening Doors. Beyond that, her staff, Elizabeth, Ed, Ricardo, Gabriel, Philip, and Chuck, each donated their entire day's work to help trafficking survivors, and she encouraged those attending the sale to donate to the agency. These donations are now making a real difference in the lives of those who have escaped trafficking. The staff at Opening Doors extends a huge "thanks" to Jennie and her amazing team!

Jennie is now working with Opening Doors on future benefit sales and other ways we might all work together to help end human slavery and assist those who have escaped its clutches.
